These courses, designed by a non-native Thai-speaking educationalist but delivered by a native-Thai speaker, aim to help foreign residents in Thailand to master the Thai language essential for everyday living in Thailand. The earlier modules focus on vocabulary, pronunciation and key phrases. As students advance, students will also learn the Thai alphabet and reading Thai, key skills necessary to become a proficient Thai speaker.
As vocabulary plays a major part of each course and to supplement this, the online tool Quizlet is used to enhance vocabulary acquisition (click here to see a sample quizlet).
James Higbie’s excellent book, Essential Thai, will underpin each 30-hour module of study.
